The Israel Missile Defense Organization (IMDO) of DDR&D and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency conducted today an intercept test of the Arrow 2 interceptor missile. The Arrow 2 is an operational system currently providing the Arrow Weapon System (AWS) with an interceptor engagement capability and the test was conducted at an Israeli test range over the Mediterranean Sea.
An Arrow 2 missile was launched and performed its flight sequence as planned. The results are being analyzed by program engineers.
The test results have no effect on the Israeli operational systems capability to cope with the existing threats in the region. This test was an improved version of the joint U.S. - Israel AWS, intended to counter future threats.
The primary contractor for the integration and the development of the Arrow Weapon System is the Israel Aerospace Industries, in conjunction with Boeing, Elta, and Elbit/ Elisra.
